Thought of the Week: I remember when Halloween was relished by all, when it was the funnest time of year for children. Then dangerous candy showed up somewhere and everything changed; kids suddenly weren’t safe without chaperones. For the past three decades, Halloween has been toned down to fall festivals and Octoberfests. House-to-house trick-or-treating has been denied to millions of children because of urban legends and myths; they are carefully monitored at church, school, and/or community events and limited to ringing doorbells of relatives and dear friends. For too many, “Halloween,” “witches,” and “magic” have become evil words, no longer suitable for school. What a bunch of hooey!…Then again, much has changed since I was a trick-or-treater.
